London-based designer Luella Bartley delivers a new collection of feminine hair accessories for spring. Headbands and hair clips come in an assortment of colors accented with sweet ribbons and bows.

Laura Bush had commissioned the biggest names in American fashion to submit sketches of the perfect gown for her daughter Jenna Bush’s walk down the aisle in May. Vera Wang, J.

A word from the wise at the Savannah College Of Art And Design’s Etoile Awards, Italian-born French designer Pierre Cardin discusses his unrelenting fervor for life: “I’m an old man, but I don’t feel like an old man. I want to do something new. I want to continue. I want to improve myself.” Cardin is known for his avant-garde style and his space age designs. He prefers geometric shapes and motifs, often ignoring the female form. He later advanced into unisex fashions, sometimes experimental, and not always practical.
